If you’ve been following me for some time now, you’ve probably noticed I enjoy jigsaw puzzles a lot. I always have one set up at home. I don’t rush to complete them, they're there purely for my enjoyment and therefore I go at my own pace. Slowly, but surely. Puzzling for me is a form … Continue reading Pass the Puzzle – Challenge
I started October with a plan: I would watch as many scary movies as I could before Halloween. From the beginning, I knew it wasn’t realistic for me to watch 31 (one a day), but I thought I could manage 15-20 scary movies easily.
